The biggest surprise was a delicious cranberry salad with mini marshmallows!!!
I'd never give this recipe a 2nd glance but now that I've tasted it . . . . more please.

Robin's Grandmother's Overnight Cranberry Salad

12 oz. cranberries (orig. 16 oz.)
2 red tart apples (or granny smith)
2/3 c. crushed pineapple
(she was out and substituted 15 oz.can mandarin oranges, well drained)
3/4 c. sugar (orig. 1 1/2 c.)
10 oz. mini marshmallows

Grind (or pulse) cranberries & apples; stir in crushed pineapple (or mandarins).
Stir in sugar & marshmallows; stir every hour at room temp. to help dissolve sugar.
Age overnight in fridge.
Next day fold in 1 c. cool whip or whipped cream (an hour before serving is fine).
Serve on lettuce leaf.

Sounds awfully good and just a bit of a change-up from what I usually make. Putting on my must make soon list.

I tried this out of curiosity this past weekend. It was freaking awesome! I added about 1/2 cup chopped roasted chopped pecans to give a crunch. Omg! It will be on my Christmas table for sure. Thanks for sharing!

Glad you liked it Shellie. Nuts sound great.

Not sure if the overnight aging is mandatory or not.

RE: RECIPE: Thanksgiving Winner! Cranberry Salad

What is meant by stir every hour? How many hours? Then after you do this for how ever many hours THEN you put it in the refrigerator, right? Sorry if this is a dumb question. Thanks in advance.

A friend served this. She made it the previous afternoon and left it on the counter top, stirring it up when she remembered, until evening. Then put it in the fridge.
Took it out the next day about an hour before we ate.

Directions had me confused too. I don't think it's a critical thing.
